“The sculpture is a space that simultaneously acts as a shelter and as an escape.” –Vasilis Vasili
For me, sculpting the stone is a process of participation in a life-long dream. In this dream, time belongs elsewhere. The stone knows and can win over the decay of life around it. I want to help connect to the pioneering spirit of Anna Leonowens through this sculptural portal.
“Passage” is located at the foot of the Salter Lot near the Halifax Waterfront boardwalk.
